IRYA Ottawa, Apr. 10.-The Canada Food Board sUtes that the new anti-waste and aotl-hosrdtng orders made by the board have been responsible, in part at least, for a large reduction in tbe surplus of apples and potatoes in Canada. The quantity of apples in the Annapolis alley and in leading marketing centres was reduced during the month ot March by nearly 100,000 barrels. Tbe smalleat reduction has Uken place at Winnipeg, where 13,00ti barrels of apples were In store on nurch SO, ss compared with ie.400 barrels on March 1. T||p Canada Food Board has telegraphed tbe chief fruit Inspector at Winnipeg Inquiring whether these holdings aro' liable to be marketed without loss. If the stocks there cannot be Uken care ot without waste the food board U prepared to reqiure dealers to dto-pose of their boldinga without delay: Very considerable supplies of oaiaas are reported to be held In BrUlah CeluaibU.
